New Virgin Australia Boeing B737-800s to Central Queensland Airports Thursday
Brand new Virgin Australia B737-800 VH-YIB was at Rockhampton Airport early on Thursday 15 September. It was believed to be operating its first ever revenue service as VOZ1231/1232.
Later in the day VH-YIA also paid a visit to Rockhampton.
A couple of other Virgin Australia B737-800s - that are still fairly new and wear the airline's new colours - were also noted around Central Queensland Airports on Thursday... VH-YIA also flew Brisbane to Hamilton Island return, VH-YFF flew Brisbane to Proserpine / Whitsunday Coast return, and VH-YFC flew Brisbane to Mackay return.
These new aircraft feature a new cabin interior as well as business class seating. It will most likely be quite rare to see these aircraft in Central Queensland, with Virgin Australia announcing last week that all flights between the East coast and Perth will now offer business class service.
